Technique Thursday – Cabling without a cable needle

This is one of those little tricks that makes a huge difference to how fast and efficiently you can knit. Once you get the hang of it simple cables will barely interrupt your flow. For cables that involve multiple crossings at once or large numbers of stitches you’ll probably want the security of using a cable needle. 

Front crossing (left leaning) twists

Back crossing (right leaning) twists

Start with a sticky wool so that the free stitches stay where you put them. With a bit of practice you’ll be slipping those stitches free and scooping them up again in one motion — cable needle freedom in any yarn!

We recently started stocking cross stitch kits from Junebug and Darlin both because we love them and also because we recognise that in parts of the world that aren't Scotland, there are months when knitting is not that enjoyable and it is good to have other craft options.

Zoe was kind enough to record a brief overview of her crafting philosophy. We have shared that over on Ysolda's instagram, but we are putting the transcript here.
